The Nadal-themed week forms part of Players’ Cut, a new series which sees Eurosport celebrate the world’s best players for a whole week (Monday-Sunday, 7-10pm CET).

Players’ Cut will replay nine classic Nadal matches, starting with his maiden Grand Slam triumph back at Roland-Garros in 2005, and ending with his 2019 victory there 14 years later.

Sunday’s episode will also feature highlights from his 2017 Roland-Garros final when he famously achieved ‘La Decima’, with a short documentary focussing on the unprecedented feat.
